Encourage your pitchers to compete for the best score in this head-to-head pitching drill. When they execute good pitches, they get rewarded with points and the ability to call their own pitches. Check out the video for a demonstration!
Purpose: To train pitchers to hit their pitches and be better competitors.
How it works: Two pitchers and a catcher set up in the bullpen. The coach selects a pitch for the first pitcher to execute. If the pitcher hits her location, she earns a point. If she misses, no point is awarded. The second pitcher then throws. If she hits her location, she earns a point. If the pitchers tie the round, the coach calls the next pitch. Anytime a pitcher wins a round, she gets to call the next pitch. Continue until one pitcher hits a predetermined score or the coach ends the drill.
